to balance our budget and get our state back on track. we didn't raise taxes, we cut taxes.

to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and ther

reduced taxes, and eliminate the death tax in ohio. the has been the biggest job trend in ohio and anywhere else in the nation. i think the governors are leading the change effort in this country, and have to continue to do that. but the federal government has been an impediment, in many cases, through its regulations and its headwinds. many in the state have predicted them from creating the jobs necessary in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are
been financing this paycheck deduction measure and financing the anti-jerry brown tax measure, though he apparently didn't think he was. that's another story. and yet tom, the hedge fund manager, financing prop 39, i think that's the only one that looks safe at this point. and up got to wonder, i mean, what is it they want? do they see a civic duty, do they see a political future for them? tom, they wonder what he's going to do. but jerry brown is a guy who has been vexed by the munger family. in this race. right? molly munger's prop 38 could be drawing support away from him and her brother charlie munger is financing the campaign apparently to kill his tax measure. >> belva: did one of them put more money in this week? >> the brother, charles, into this political action committee called the small business action committee. i'm not sure there are any small businesses involved in it. that's been fueling this no on 30, yes on 32 mix. this is a tremendous amount of money. and i don't think any of us who watch california politics, the folks there in the studio or me, are surprised this is
ma close held over the republicans and they didn't blink. >> he wants to pressure a tax increase or defense cuts and the thinks, understandably, -- he hopes they'll go for a tax -- democrats were willing to risk some domestic spending cuts. so, kim, how is this playing on the campaign trail? mitt romney is trying to make hay with this defense issue in states like virginia, new hampshire, and ohio. >> and that is unfortunate for the president and they have been worried about that, which is why the administration was advising defense companies not to send out legally required layoff notices which were due to hit before the election because they werewide bet the fallout in places like virginia, new hampshire, north carolina has a big defense industry. and you're seeing mitt romney now running ads, talking about the sequester, laying this back on the white house's lap. you're seeing senate candidates, like george allen, hitting this very hard and this is not necessarily helping the white house on at the trail right now. >> you think this is a winner for romney. >> to the extent it ha

the largest budget surplus ever in history. it's going to make it possible tor us to cut taxes for every hoosier. but jon, you just said we pay for things in indiana. but when you were speaker of the house, for five of the six years you were running the state house, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into power indiana was $700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. facts are stubborn things and i'd like to knoll how are we going to make sure and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> if you had spent the last 12 years here you'd know our budget has to be balanced. i produce balanced budget t and they were supported by our own lieutenant governor. i find it laughable that a united states congressman would lecture anybody about fiscal responsibility. you voted five times, congressman, you you voted and the results increased our deficit by $200 billion with a b dollars. >> find key house and governor races on c-span campaign 2012. >> an update on hurricane sandy coming up at about 2:30 eastern which up until then with an election a few days away a

again, the tax revenue is >>> grab a california ballot and you'll notice that once again, voters are being asked for more money. once again, the request for more tax revenue is aimed an helping california's struggling schools. that's a request other state agencies don't have to make. as cbs 5 reporter dana explains... >> reporter: a classroom and a jail cell are both expensive to operate. but when public schools need more money, they often have to ask voters for it. that is not the case for the department of corrections. >> all the things we need to create a healthy safe california are being negatively impacted by all of the ways in which we're funneling resources into locking people up. >> reporter: in 2007, the state legislature passed a law allowing the california department of corrections to raise billions of dollars using something called lease revenue bonds. the proceeds of which go to capital improvement projects for prisons and do not require voter approval. last year, the prison system sold $900 million worth, a practice that those who oppose prison expansion call a back

have been on the subject, given how much of it we have talked about. significant things like tax policy and policies on deficits. i think there is going to be a long period of time before we will get any action on this. i'm just talking about when someone puts out an idea, which has to be challenged in congress and debated, and then you get something fast, and then you have the implementation. after all, think about where we are as far as implementation in terms of obamacare. unfortunately, i am very pessimistic about when we finally get resolution. >> yes, sir. >> i am a student at harvard kennedy school. you started your remarks talking about the incredible remarks before the conservatorship. as we think about the entities that will follow, how we think about creating an appropriate amount of political installation against lobbying when it comes to capital requirements or appropriately pricing governments guarantee? >> that is a real important question. i can tell you that during my time in the conservatorship. we had really strong restrictions. we were not able to make any political
to strengthen our budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for every resident. use every paper things in indiana. when you are speaker of the house, for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. came in, indiaaniels was $700 million in debt and a deficit of $700 million. i would like to know, from my colleagues on stage, how we will mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana. >> if you spent the last 12 years in india and not congress you would know that our budget needs to be balanced. i have a balanced bipartisan a balanced budget. and the things you talked about were supported by david long, and lieutenant governor. find laughable that united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results in increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key house, senate and governor's races on the c-span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign 2012. >> a discussion on the current state and future of the news industry, focusing on investigative reporting a
the sales tax a quarter cent and state income tax for those making more than $250,000 a year funneling $6 billion into schools and universities. and it looks like support is rising. it needs more than 50% to win. three weeks ago, only 45% of voters said yes. and there was a huge number of undecided ones. well, now it looks like the governor's initiative has enough to eek it out with 51% planning to vote yes. >> let's see how two ballot measures measure up. >> reporter: the new numbers look grim for the competing measure 38. it would raise state income tax for almost all californians for schools and preschool programs. the latest poll shows it's losing with 55% saying no. how do californians feel though about the death penalty? the newest poll shows they want to keep it. 51% said they would vote no on proposition 34 which would uphold the death penalty. 41% say they will vote yes which would prohibit the death penalty and replace it with life in prison without parole. food labeling has become a hot button issue. prop 37 would require companies to label processed food made with genetically
